Survival Tip #244
Think of yourself like a 5-speed bike. Every gear has a purpose. Some will take your farther per stroke, others will make your turnover easier for the climbs. Each of these is a different tool you can use to maximize the efficiency of the bike. You need to train to be able to use all of your speeds. There might need to be a time where a six minute mile is the different between life or death, but another occasion might require you to maintain a thirty minute mile for a hundred miles. Train yourself to be able to use every skill and talent you can muster and know when to use them.
